Listing for a 18 inch keepsake memory bear. The bears photographed are samples of bears I have made.

***Current creation time is 8-10 weeks from the time I receive your items.***

Are you looking for a unique and special way to remember/honor a loved one. Memory bears are the perfect way to have a comforting keepsake to cherish and hold onto. Each bear is created using clothing items you send to me. I take great pride in my work and will treat your memories and clothes as if they are my own memories of my grama, whom I started and modeled my shop after.

I handmake each bear with great attention to the detail of the clothing that is sent to me. I use as much detail, buttons, logos, patches as I can in the creation of each bear. Please keep in mind if a logo is particularly large it may not fit on the bear. All bears are stuffed with soft cluster fiber fill. I use black plastic safety eyes and noses for the faces and adorn the bear with a bow for a sweet finishing touch. Each bears seams are stitched twice for extra strength.

Some suggestions for clothing are:

Cotton button down shirts, I use the buttons on the bear.
Polo shirts
Sweat shirts
Flannel or fleece
Tightly woven sweaters
*A light stabilizer is ironed into stretchy fabrics to help keep the shape of the bear*

Please do not send
Loose knit sweaters.
See through fabrics.
Very thick materials.

Amount of clothing needed by size
XL or large shirts : 1 shirt per bear
medium or smaller: at least two shirts per bear
I will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding items and quantity to send.

The process to order:

1. Once I receive notification of your paid purchase, I will send you an Etsy conversation with the address to ship your items to.

2. When I receive your items I will let you know they have safely arrived and clarify the details of what you would like created. Please include your name inside the package and if you have special requests please include a note and I will contact you via Etsy convo to clarify any requests.

3. I will keep you updated as the creation progresses and let you know when your bear is ready to come back to you.

** Creation time begins once I receive your items. As this is a custom handmade item I cannot refund once I cut your fabric.

These bears are intended to be a keepsake and are not intended as a toy for small children.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey and offer you a bit of comfort from my heart. Hugs.

Five stars is simply not enough. I gave Jen a very odd request, to make my bears with a partial right leg because my dad only had one leg. I sent her 4 shirts of his to mix and match as she thought would look the best. I had solid expectations, but she exceeded them. I opened the package with these bears and the tears started flowing. These are so much better than I could have imagined and are the perfect tribute to my dad for his grandchildren to cherish.

I wish I could leave a 10 star review. This bear looked beautiful in pictures but in person it’s so much better. Losing a loved one is never easy, I’m so thankful that there are so many talented people out there who find unique ways to make these memories last.

I wish I could give more than five stars! I had a tight timeline to have these ready before the one year anniversary of losing my teenage sister. I had these made for my parents and grandparents. The seller had amazing communication! Any little detail I asked for, she made it happen! She was very empathetic and understanding of the situation. I was also impressed with the way the bears were shipped. So much attention to detail from the beginning of the purchase, to crafting the bears and to making them arrive safety. Thank you for this amazing gift. My family will forever treasure it.

This Teddy turned out so much more than I expected! Jen took the bamboo swaddle that my granddaughter came home from the hospital two years ago, and made a beautiful teddy bear. My granddaughter went wild with joy, even though she’s too young to appreciate the symbolism. Thanks Jen!
